Mie Yim

Mie Yim’s paintings combine saturated colors with dramatic content and thick surface textures to express the artist's notions of beauty. Her figures—like her memories of her childhood in South Korea—are often hazy and fuzzy, and have changed over her career from anthropomorphic animals into strange machine-like beings. Yim’s work juxtaposes representations of bunny ears and doe eyes with an underlying sense of horror to uncanny effect.
